Second Twin Dies After Car Crash In Washington

Two beautiful teen twins died following a car crash -- the first twin died immediately after the accident, and her sister succumbed to her injuries nearly two weeks later.

Janesah and Janeah Goheen of Oak Harbor, Wash., a town on picturesque Whidbey Island, were involved in a car crash around 5 p.m. Halloween evening, according to various local news reports. They were headed to a local haunted house, KIRO-TV said.

Their 1993 Acura was struck by a 2006 Ford Mustang driven by 53-year-old Ira Blackstock, who suffered a broken leg. Police said he showed signs of impairment, and had an Alcoholics Anonymous pamphlet on the back seat of his car. Tests showed he was not drunk, police said, but they are testing his blood for drugs, according to the Whidbey News-Times.

Janeah died immediately. Janesah held on for 11 days, and passed away Monday. A service will be held Saturday for family and friends.

The family lost another daughter, Jessica Goheen, five years ago in a car crash, according to the New York Daily News. She was 24.

      Losing three daughters in 2 separate car accidents...horrible. Maybe it's just bad luck, but I think a little defensive driving goes a long way. I'm not saying this or the prior accident were the girls' faults, but the news report states that speed was a factor. This combined with teens' inexperience behind the wheel is often a deadly combination. It sounds like the other driver at least shares blame since he was "impaired", but it's a sad story for the parents either way.

          They had a 3rd daughter killed 5 years previous. That's what makes this all the more tragic.

          No, there were two accidents. The more recent one killed the twin girls, a previous accident (5 years ago) killed another daughter.

        When my sons started driving, they had older vehicles that were made of actual steel. I figured it was some protection, and better than the newer cars which seem to be mostly plastic.

      I have 3 daughters and like all parents fear losing a child. I don't know how I would continue on if I lost all 3. Heart Breaking.

      I don't know exactly what happened here ,but after driving for 50 yrs I have learned through the yrs if you drive slower in a lot of cases it gives you more time to react to a situation. A lot of people follow others way too close. Today a lot of people go faster ,and very deadly is going too fast for a two lane highway where you don't have much room to manuver in an emergency.

      What a horrible thing to happen losing three and do not know if they had anymore. But could not imagine the pain and suffering these poor people are enduring. We do not know why things happen but we still must remember God is in control and he will be with you if you trust him and live for him. The day is coming soon that we will will raptured up to be with God that are saved and I am looking so forward to this. My parents are there and many other kin and friends what a glorious reunion that will be. Look to the Heavens Jesus will be coming soo.
